HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Congressman Kai Kahele is presiding over the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday.

Kahele is Speaker Pro-Tempore for Thursday’s House proceedings.

“It is my distinct honor to lead these proceedings as this year’s election concludes,” Kahele said, in a statement. “This election has come at a monumental time in our nation’s history and demonstrates that every vote plays a part in shaping our nation’s future.”

The timing is especially appropriate for Kahele, with Friday being Veterans Day.
